SUSPECT ARRESTED IN 1989 WASHINGTON, D.C. MURDER

A 15-year-old murder mystery is closer to being solved following the arrest of deaf suspect Ricky Andre Haywood of West Goshen, Pa. Ronnie Johnson, 33, died July 29, 1989 of a single stab wound in southeast Washington, D.C. A criminal complaint charging Haywood with second-degree murder indicates that witnesses, all of whom are hearing impaired, came forward recently. They say Haywood suspected Johnson of having an affair with his girlfriend, who supplied him with the knife. Haywood, 39, was taken into custody at his home Dec. 9 by Washington authorities and West Goshen police. He waived extradition and was expected to be transported to Washington by the end of the month.

PARENTS SUE SOUTH DAKOTA SCHOOL OVER ALLEGED ABUSE

The Associated Press reported yesterday on a lawsuit that has been filed against the South Dakota School for the Deaf by the parents of two SDSD students. The lawsuit alleges that the school failed to protect the students from sexual and physical assault by a 17-year-old student. The students were 12 and 13 at the time of the alleged abuse, which occurred during the 2002-03 school year. The complaint also names former superintendent Jon Green; the state Board of Regents; and Jack Rabbit Lines Inc., which transported students home from the school. The parents are asking for an unspecified amount of money, partly to cover medical costs and counseling for the alleged victims. SDSD is “one of the safest schools in the nation,” Board of Regents attorney James Shekleton told the AP.

FIRED NEWS ANCHOR SETTLES SUIT AGAINST TV STATION

A TV station in Greensboro, N.C. has settled a lawsuit filed by a former news anchor who claimed he was fired because he is deaf in one ear. Frank Fraboni said WFMY (CBS, Channel 2) violated the Americans with Disabilities Act when he was dismissed in 2002. Station executives, however, say he was fired due to poor performance on viewership surveys and awkward relationships with co-workers, reported the News & Record in yesterday’s edition. The lawsuit “has been amicably resolved,” Fraboni’s attorney said. Terms of the settlement were not revealed. Fraboni, whose hearing was damaged in a 2002 surgical procedure, now works for WUPN in Kernersville, N.C., where he earns $80,000 a year.

NEW MACHINES IN ALABAMA OFFER DRIVER LICENSE TEST IN ASL

Machines have been installed in 16 locations around Alabama that will let deaf people take their driver license test in American Sign Language. The machines, which cost $200,000 to install, aren’t just for deaf people, the Birmingham News reported Dec. 23. All driver license applicants will use them, and they offer the test in 12 languages and an audio version for people who can’t read. Applicants respond to 30 multiple-choice questions called up randomly from a database of 800 questions. The new system is “really helpful in tearing down the barriers that we’ve been facing for years,” said Judith Gilliam, president of the Alabama Association of the Deaf.

DEAF FILIPINO IMMIGRANT FIGHTS DEPORTATION

Gerardo Dulalia, a deaf Filipino immigrant, is asking the federal government to drop deportation proceedings against him on humanitarian grounds, the San Jose (Calif.) Mercury News reported Dec. 23. Dulalia, an interpreter at Ohlone College in Fremont, has a deportation hearing scheduled for Jan. 11 in San Francisco. His father fought with American troops in World War II and was promised U.S. citizenship, but the government didn’t honor its promise until 1990, some 44 years later. By that time, Dulalia was an adult, and since he was born in the Philippines, he did not automatically become an American citizen. “Had the U.S. government kept its promise,” said his attorney, “Gerry would have been born a U.S. citizen and would not be facing removal from the U.S.”

WOMAN FOUND GUILTY OF FILING A FALSE POLICE REPORT

The deaf woman who told police she was raped at MacArthur Center mall in Norfolk, Va. was found guilty last week of filing a false police report. According to the Virginian-Pilot, Pernita Jackson claimed to be the victim of a sexual attack on Nov. 5. After an investigation that included a review of the mall’s security videotapes, police concluded that she actually left the mall and went out of the city to have consensual sex. Jackson was sentenced to 200 hours of community service at an infant home. If she does not comply, she’ll have to pay a $1,000 fine and could serve 60 days in jail.

DEAF WOMAN’S BLIND MOM ESCAPES INJURY

An unidentified 65-year-old deaf woman spent the holidays in a hotel room with her blind mom, 88-year-old Miriam Michael, after an SUV crashed into the mother’s home in Santa Clara, Calif., trapping the elderly woman beneath a pile of rubble. Michael told the Associated Press that she was very lucky to be alive after the accident early in the morning on Christmas Eve. The front wheel of the Ford Explorer stopped just a foot from her head after slamming through her bedroom wall. The driver was not hurt and was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence.

GRINCH STEALS CHRISTMAS LIGHTS FROM ILL MAN’S HOME

The Bulletin of Bend, Ore. reported Dec. 23 that Christmas lights were stolen from outside the retirement home of a deaf senior who is battling terminal cancer. It took almost two weeks for Leon Ziebarth, 71, to string up seven strands of light around the home he shares with Carole, his wife of 48 years. When the couple returned from an outing with friends, they discovered the lights were missing. “The thing that was so upsetting is my husband is sick and he did this for the grandchildren,” said Carole Ziebarth.

VAN STOLEN WITH CHILDREN’S HEARING AIDS INSIDE

A thief who made off with a 2000 Plymouth Grand Voyager in Henderson, Nev. last week stole more than the family’s minivan – also missing are the state-of-the-art hearing aids two children in the family need to use their cochlear implants. Susan Misso “just wants to get their ears back,” reported KESO News 3. Her six-year-old son and four-year-old daughter need the devices to hear. The daughter’s old hearing aid was also in the van, meaning she can’t hear anything at all – not even a jet landing, her mom said. News reports about the theft brought offers of help, including one from a deaf Las Vegas woman offering her own cochlear hearing aid – but it was a model incompatible with the children’s devices.

FOUR FROM MAINE HONORED FOR HELPING RUSSIAN ORPHANAGE

Four Maine residents were honored by the Russian Embassy last week for their support of a Russian orphanage for hearing- and speech-impaired children. U.S. Senator Susan Collins presented the embassy’s awards to Mary Dinan of Cumberland and Jim and Maureen Gorman of Falmouth. The fourth honoree, Greg Foltz, was unable to attend the Dec. 21 ceremony because he is being treated for cancer. According to the Portland Press Herald, the group’s charitable efforts were inspired by a 1999 Associated Press photo of a deaf 8-year-old girl with a shaved head. Foltz managed to track down the girl, named Sophia, in Novozybkov and organized the Sophia Fund, which has raised thousands of dollars for the orphanage where she lives with about 75 other children. This year the group has raised nearly $30,000 to buy computers for the orphanage.

KATHMANDU DEAF ASSOCIATION OPENS 15TH ANNUAL MEETING

Deepak Kumar Shakya, president of the Kathmandu Association of the Deaf, wants the government to open a college for the deaf, provide licenses to deaf drivers, and provide land for his organization to build an office. Shakya spoke last Saturday at the opening of the association’s 15th annual general meeting and eighth general convention. Keynote speaker Ashtalaxmi Shakya, Nepal’s Minister for Women, Children and Social Welfare, told attendees the government is committed to protecting the rights and interests of the disabled. But the government can’t do it alone, she added; cooperation from all sectors are needed.

U.K. WOMAN REGAINS HEARING AFTER NINE MONTHS OF SILENCE

News outlets in the United Kingdom were flooded last week with the story of a 21-year-old woman who regained her hearing after going deaf suddenly nine months ago. Emma Hassell said she was taking a shower last April when her ears “popped” and her world went silent. Doctors could not explain why Hassell went deaf, but said her hearing loss might be psychological. She had a miscarriage in 2002 and was told she might not be able to conceive again. She underwent about eight treatments of Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), a form of acupuncture using fingertips instead of needles to stimulate energy points around the body. Afterwards, her hearing suddenly returned – just in time to hear the news that she is pregnant.

MAN FROM INDIA TO ATTEND DUBBING AND SUBTITLING CONFERENCE

Sameer Bhardwaj, a self-proclaimed “dubbing consultant” from Bombay, India, said in a recent news release that he will be the first Indian to attend a biennial dubbing and subtitling conference in Germany. The dubbing industry in India lags behind the rest of the world, Bhardwaj said, with no professional organization or government body to oversee the profession. “There is no subtitling or captioning on Indian satellite channels for the deaf community,” he said, whereas “elsewhere there are strict laws for this and the deaf community too enjoys a variety of programming.” He added that once there is a degree and professional preparation in dubbing, “this whole scenario will change.”

MORE THEATERS OFFER CAPTIONED FILMS IN THE U.K.

Last year, only 22 movie theaters in the United Kingdom offered subtitled screenings of Hollywood blockbusters. This year, more than 130 theaters offered captioned film showings, said the Royal National Institute for the Deaf last week. The RNID has spent five years working to improve deaf access to movie theaters through its Access to the Arts Campaign. Said campaign head Mark Morris: “It is great news as deaf and hard-of-hearing people have been excluded from the enjoyment of cinema since the end of silent movies in the 1920s.”

PUPIL ASSISTANCE FUND HELPS DEAF STUDENT GET GLASSES

Fatima Uribe of Denver has a new pair of glasses, thanks to the Denver Public Schools’ Pupil Assistance Fund. Uribe, a deaf 19-year-old high school junior, was profiled in yesterday’s Rocky Mountain News. “I realized last year I couldn’t see,” she said. “This year I still couldn’t see. Everything was really blurry.” She was hesitant to ask her parents for help – “They don’t really have any money,” she said – so she went to Dottie Wanberg, a school nurse, who was able to arrange through the pupil assistance fund to get Uribe an eye exam and new glasses. Last year, more than 2,000 students from low-income families received $81,795 in assistance from the fund. “I can see, I can read,” said Uribe. “It’s a lot better now.”

CLASSMATES RAISE MONEY TO HELP GIRL REGAIN HEARING

Amber Hudson, 18, had been saying “huh?” for a long time, her mom Dorothy Hudson told the Record-Courier of Gardnerville, Nev. Sunday, but “we’ve really been paying attention for about a year and a half.” Finally, Amber was taken to see an audiologist, who found that fluid in her ears was blocking most of her hearing, leaving her almost completely deaf. She needed surgery, but didn’t have insurance. Amber’s classmates at Douglas High School learned of her predicament and came forward to raise $400 toward the medical procedure. Family members chipped in the rest, and Amber had surgery just before Thanksgiving.

INTERPRETERS GET FINGERPRINTED AT HOLIDAY PARTY

More than 100 freelance and staff interpreters at Deaf Access Inc. had the chance to “eat, drink and be fingerprinted,” reported the Dec. 22 News Observer of Raleigh, N.C. Deaf Access president Marie Guernsey invited retired special agent Dennis Morgan to the interpreting agency’s annual holiday bash so that the interpreters could get their fingerprint cards and license photos taken before a new licensing law goes into effect soon.

STUDY TO FOCUS ON INTERPRETER QUALIFICATION

‘DEAF STAGE’ FEATURED AT FIRST NIGHT BEVERLY

Deaf storyteller Peter Cook will be the featured performer on the Deaf Stage at First Night Beverly, an annual event that rings in the New Year in Beverly, Mass. First Night Beverly has had a Deaf Stage since 1994, when KR Glickman approached the organizing committee with the idea of having ASL performances as part of the activities. “I thought, First Night is boring, it’s all hearing things,” she told the Beverly Citizen. “Why not have something for deaf people?” This year, unlike in the past, there will be no interpreter on hand to voice the ASL performances. “Hearing people have to remember not to get mad,” said Glickman. “I have one deaf stage, you can go to many different musical events.”

DEAF DOCENT OFFERS ASL TOURS AT ROCHESTER GALLERY

Deaf visitors to the Memorial Art Gallery in Rochester, N.Y. now have the opportunity to enjoy tours in American Sign Language, thanks to newly trained docent Jackie Schertz. According to the Democrat and Chronicle, Schertz prepared for the job by undergoing an intensive training program that met every week for nine months, with an interpreter provided by the museum. In return, she is expected to lead a tour at least once a month for the next three years. “I plan to do this for much longer than that,” she said.
